Synonymous with the crowd from MTV’s Geordie Shore, the aptly named Diamond Strip is home to the exclusive, A-list crowd. Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kanye West and Michelle Keegan have all been seen around these parts…

Just along from Central Station, and well within walking distance of other nightlife districts, this is the city’s trendiest area – brimming with decadent and extravagant bars. As soon as you set foot on the diamond encrusted pavements (not really), you will have (literally) stepped onto the set of Geordie Shore – with muscle-bound blokes and lasses with nee coats roaming the streets.

Become a Geordie Shore extra on your hen weekend, with a trip down the famous Diamond Strip.

Cash, Cabs and Kebabs

Cash Machines

The Diamond Strip itself doesn’t really do ATMs (it’s far too posh for that) – but there are several in surrounding areas such as the Bigg Market and Grainger Street.

Taxis

There’s a taxi rank just outside House of Smith, right in the middle of The Diamond Strip, as well as another just along from Central Station. The adjoining The Bigg Market also has its own designated taxi rank, should The Diamond Strip queues be too long.

Takeaways

No Geordie Shore night out ends without one of the group’s heads in a box of cheesy chips or pizza – and neither will your hen night. Although it’s a classy district, it’s still littered with fast food joints to indulge in. There’s even a Subway actually on The Diamond Strip – a welcome sight at 2am after several Revs vodka chains.
